This means that the following branches will no longer be actively maintained: netbsd-2 netbsd-2-0 netbsd-2-1 For example: - - There will be no more pullups to the branches (even for security issues) - - There will be no security advisories made for any of the 2.x related releases - - The current 2.x based releases on ftp.netbsd.org will be moved into /pub/NetBSD-archive We strongly suggest migrating to a later supported release such as the netbsd-3 or netbsd-4 branches.
